CFP - Calls for Papers


As Jean-Jacques Rousseau put it, "a little bit of agitation gives motivation to the soul, and what really makes the species prosper is not peace so much as freedom." With freedom comes some unpredictable fluctuation. This is one of life's packages: there is no freedom without noise - and no stability without volatility.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb and Mark Blyth in the Black Swan of Cairo: How Suppressing Volatility Makes the World Less Predictable and More Dangerous (Thanks to Ismail Parsa for the quotation)
